So when I took this job, I told Chris I would write once a month in the offseason, yeah that worked. Getting married, promoted, and buying a house gets in the way, but not sure those are valid excuses, here we go. Its almost time for the best of all times of the year, the football season(though by the weather in the Midwest you could be fooled into thinking it was October already) But alas, I am beginning to dive into conference reports, and here shortly I will make the Cs.com predictions for the season champs/standings. If you have some insider information feel free to post, and comments are always welcome. On a side note, what’s your circle game this year? For this Panther fan, it is definitely the NDSU game in Fargo, as much as we despise some of the Bizon fans, they have shown up and have represented the Valley conference and if UNI wants to get back to the pinnacle of FCS, the road goes through Fargo this year.

“You’re it until you die or I find someone better”
Well here goes Its wednesday may 23,2012 99 days until we can stop talking about our kids/playing elimination games/counting down the days until the greatest season known to mankind. I am open to doing this blog governed by the people, for the people, and written by me. I am open to suggestions on what you want to see more of, what you want to see less of etc. During the season I will be posting at least once a week(primarily during the week after the polls come out) which will be my opinons and our observations on the State that is FCS football.
During the off-season unless I see something I really want to blog about you want hear to much out of me.
As we are nearing the end of the spring season and starting our summer of waiting, the news out of most places will be pretty minimal, however the biggest news of the off-season has got to be the Montana Scandal. As a Panther fan one HAS to wonder how that game would of played out if those responsible had been disciplined properly, and one has to wonder if the AD and Coach Pflu are thinking a semi-final loss to SHSU was worth losing their jobs over. What can you say hind sight is 20/20.
Also in the news is the ever present conference re-alingment has started to trickle down to the FCS ranks, with several FCS schools being the mention of moving up(or in some cases a move down to the Sun Belt, etc) This begs the question, is FCS football sustaniable in today’s money-hungry world? I honestly believe it is, while i think of the likes of Montana, NDSU, Deleware, App State, etc will eventually move up I think those schools who aren’t their states no.1 or no.2 programs(GSU, UNI, Wofford) will stay in FCS land as either there isn’t the support in the state or the money to make the move to a sub-BCS conference.
Well kids that’s all for today! Let me know what you did like and didn’t like, but if you think you can do better, volunteer next time.
